This authoritative, state-of-the-art reference work builds on its first edition to provide a cutting-edge systematic review of the relationship between race/ethnicity and educational inequality. Studying 25 different national contexts drawn from every inhabited continent on earth and building upon material from the earlier edition, the work analyses educational policies, practices and research on minority students, immigrants and refugees. The editors and contributors explore principal research traditions from countries as diverse as Argentina, China, Norway and South Africa, examining the factors promoting social cohesion as well as considerations regarding the use of international test score data. Seamlessly integrating findings of national reviews, the editors and contributors analyse how national contexts of race/ethnic relations shape the character and content of educational inequalities, and deftly map out new directions for future research in the area. Global in its perspective and definitive in content, this one-stop volume will be an indispensable reference resource for a wide range of academics, students and researchers in the fields of education, sociology, race and ethnicity studies and social policy.

The Palgrave Handbook of Race and the Arts in Education is the first edited volume to examine how race operates in and through the arts in education. Until now, no single source has brought together such an expansive and interdisciplinary collection in exploration of the ways in which music, visual art, theater, dance, and popular culture intertwine with racist ideologies and race-making. Drawing on Critical Race Theory, contributing authors bring an international perspective to questions of racism and anti-racist interventions in the arts in education. The book’s introduction provides a guiding framework for understanding the arts as white property in schools, museums, and informal education spaces. Each section is organized thematically around historical, discursive, empirical, and personal dimensions of the arts in education. This handbook is essential reading for students, educators, artists, and researchers across the fields of visual and performing arts education, educational foundations, multicultural education, and curriculum and instruction.

In unterschiedlichen Bereichen unserer Lebenswirklichkeit lässt sich feststellen: alles ist in Bewegung. Waren werden lokal entwickelt und verbreiten sich global, Menschen setzen sich in Bewegung, wechseln ihre Wohnorte und Arbeitsplätze und auch Städte unterliegen einem permanenten Transformationsprozess, dem Aushandlungsprozesse um Beteiligung und Mitbestimmung eingeschrieben sind. Bewegung ist längst zur Norm geworden und individuelle Beweglichkeit zur Voraussetzung für die persönliche Teilhabe an einer globalisierten Welt. Das Ineinandergreifen multipler Mobilitäten ist zunehmend spürbar und auch in der Wissenschaft Gegenstand unterschiedlicher Disziplinen. Aus der Perspektive verschiedener Fachrichtungen nimmt der siebte Band der Reihe 'University - Society - Industry' gesellschaftliche und damit verknüpfte räumliche Bewegungsformen in den Blick. 23 Autorinnen und Autoren loten das Gestaltungspotential urbaner Partizipationsprozesse aus, diskutieren die Effekte von Migration und Integration und analysieren Strukturen, die sich aktuell im Umbruch befinden. Neben gesellschaftlichen Aspekten werden wirtschaftliche Dynamiken analysiert und Veränderungen im Bereich der Mobilität analysiert.

China's Mongols at University looks at interactions among the government, universities, and minority Mongol students. Zhenzhou Zhao gradually presents and reflects on life stories of seemingly privileged minorities in China's higher education system. The book compares three universities in separate provinces or regions that represent distinct types of higher educational institutions and discusses the issue of educational justice from the perspective of the politics of recognition in market-oriented, globalizing China.

Inclusion and Diversity in Education

Category: Education

Page: 1770

This 4-volume set brings together seminal articles and key writings on the theme of inclusion and diversity in education. The collection takes disability and special educational need as a starting point from which to develop a broader focus on a range of themes relating to learners who may be marginalised from educational opportunities. This includes for example members of minority ethnic communities, students excluded from schools or who are 'looked after' in public care, and other dimensions of exclusion arising from social class, gender or sexuality. The starting point for understanding inclusive education lies in social justice perspectives, and this forms the basis for the first volume. Volumes two and three focus on research aimed at developing more inclusive practices both at the levels of schools and school systems, and at the levels of inclusive pedagogy, enacted in the classroom and through the curriculum.Volume four reflects the range of voices in research on inclusive education, drawing on traditionally marginalised voices and those of learners in particular. Three cross-cutting themes are represented across all four volumes: a chronological approach, showing how key concepts and perspectives have developed in each area of the literature; identified groups of learners; developing more nuanced readings of how processes of exclusion and inclusion intersect dimensions such as disability, class and race; and, contexts for learning - such as urban education and global or comparative perspectives.
